12:34 p.m. PT – Fat Joe And the Uncle Luke They buried the hatchet and cleared the air as to who found out who – and who deserves the credit… With FJ’s concession, yes… it was Luke.
The two hip-hop legends jumped on IG Live to set the record straight, with Joe explaining that he didn’t claim to have discovered either of them. pitbull or Dad’s trickbut instead – they just amplified their music and it helped them go on even more than they already were.
Luke seemed to agree with this description, and they left on peaceful terms.
Fat Joe’s latest storytelling tour has him in the crossfire of Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell… who doesn’t agree with Joe’s recollection of a major Florida rap schedule.
Joe was a guest Hoffa MathMy “expert opinion” over the summer—claiming to have been the first co-stars for future legends Trick Daddy and Pitbull…and weaving their early demos into successful career launches—is Don as he says.
Joe also takes credit for blowing up a fellow Bronx rapper French Montana —but the founder of 2 Live Crew, who had just happened to interview, couldn’t stand Pitbull and TD’s comments and dug through his bag of receipts… Rick Ross I found it quite amusing.
He actually hung under Luke’s long comment, laughing at his choice of words.
Anyway, Luke says he was the one who put Trick Daddy – with their 1996 booty-shaking anthem collaboration “Scarred” – on record right when TD got home from prison and started his career… suggesting FJ was full of Claiming to discover it.
The proud Miami native said the same for Pitbull… noting that he signed the Cuban star to his Luke Records imprint during his career’s upbringing, which happened in 2001.
Bottom line… Luke directly contradicts Joe’s recollection of events, and dares to correct the record, as he says he has evidence to back up his memory. Not only that, but Luke went on to say that he actually dug it DJ Khaled Out of obscurity and making it mainstream as well.
Joe hasn’t responded yet – but the man has been receiving a lot of criticism lately for such anecdotes – including asserting that Latinos were just as important in Founding of the hip-hop genre.
